12:00 pm
the address at a community-based organization in the bayview. in his address he proposed and proposed $50 million for public schools and an annual million for preschool. he pushed the need for transportation for improving the current system to today's technology. the mayor announced he would convene a san francisco transportation 2030 task force calling city and transportation leaders to set down top priorities. he wants to replace the housing authority with a new model and hopes to bring more affordable housing and options to the city. in closing the mayor has said there's a lot of progress during his term but still room to grow. >> if we work together, if we put the people ahead of politics, committing them to unleashing extraordinary talents then i don't have a single doubt that san francisco will be forever strong for us
12:01 pm
and for our future and for future generations. thank you and go 9ers! >> of course, yes, he had to throw in that for our super bowl hopefuls. in addition to that, he talked about other success with our sports teams. the giants' big win, also the warriors moving to the city over the next five years. no comment on also how the 49ers will be moving to santa clara. but we want to make note that the mayor also touched upon jobs and his plan for improving that growth in our city for infrastructure as well as promoting small business. the mayor's administration wanted to make note that currently unemployment in our city is at 6.5%. back to you, frank. >> no word on a possible bet with the baltimore mayor? >> reporter: no, not yet. no word on that yet. no word on a parade. again, i guess they are going to try to focus on like he mentioned before keeping things safe in the city first. but don't worry, we'll keep an eye on it and let everyone know when that parade or bet is planned. >> he has to do the bet before the parade and then win the
12:02 pm
game. cate caugiran live in san francisco, thank you. having the niners in the big game is likely to provide a boost to san francisco in terms of psychology and economics. when a team is contending for a championship, a city's confidence in itself goes up naturally and one estimate says being a super bowl contender can add $10 to residents' annual -- $120 to residents's annual income. >> it's absolutely good for the economy. there is a relationship between mood and spending and when people do feel good, they spend more. >> reporter: and they feel good right now? >> very good, very excited right now. >> a 9er win would bring positive attention to the city on the national stage plus bragging rights for a long time afterwards. but we need a winner. new developments in the deadly nightclub fire in brazil. three people are now in custody for questioning including one of the club's owners. more than 230 people died and hundreds were hurt in yesterday's early-morning fire
12:03 pm
in the southern city of santa maria. about 2,000 people were inside the nightclub at the time. double its maximum capacity. now, the club had only one working exit for all those people. security guards initially blocked the door thinking party- goers were trying to leave without paying. investigators are questioning the owner and members of the band on stage when the fire started. the band's pyrotechnics show may have sparked the blaze. fire investigators are also looking into a fire at a comedy club in fairfield. the five-alarm fire caused the roof to class at pepper belly's friday night: flames shot up 40 to 50 feet in the air. everyone inside got out safely. and the fire in brazil was the deadliest nightclub fire in the world since 2000. and that combined with the fairfield incident is prompting local questions about fire safety. cbs 5 reporter elissa
12:04 pm
harrington has a look at the safeguards in san francisco. >> it's a terrible tragedy. and i always think that this is something that could be prevented. >> reporter: what could have prevented this fire in brazil that killed 200 people? reports have emerged that the nightclub was overcrowded. there was just one exit. and when a band member set off a faulty pyrotechnic the crowd had only moments to escape. they all went for the same door causing a bottleneck and stampede. back here in san francisco, firefighters say this serves as a reminder as to why they are so strict on fire codes. the san francisco fire department does routine inspections for exits, paths and specific rules for pyrotechnics. >> we need them to submit a package detailing exactly who is doing it to see if they're qualified, where they're doing it and what are they doing. >> reporter: there's also an on- site inspection and if approved there will be a fire official on site at all times during the event. anytime you go into a crowded
12:05 pm
place, you take a risk. firefighters say you need to protect yourself. >> the first thing that i would look for if i was going in would be where would be a secondary entrance or exit? >> reporter: there should be at least two sometimes more. in every club, bar and restaurant here in san francisco, there look a sign on the wall that lets you know the capacity. firefighters say if it seems too crowded, the best thing you can do is leave. in san francisco, elissa harrington, cbs 5. three young people were killed and a fourth badly hurt when their car slammed through a highway guardrail in foster city. last night it happened on eastbound 92 around 9 p.m. the crash killed a 12-year-old boy, his 16-year-old brother and the 21-year-old driver. the 18-year-old brother of the two younger victims is in critical condition with major injuries. chp is trying to determine why that driver may have lost control. and the chp also wants to know who is responsible for this dangerous spun on 880 in oakland. the video appeared online over the weekend showing drivers
12:06 pm
doing doughnuts on the middle of the freeway in the middle of the day. the so-called sideshow stopped traffic near the coliseum. investigators are trying to track down the drivers. a new blueprint for overhauling the nation's immigration laws could be on the president's desk this year. as cbs reporter danielle nottingham tells us, the plan has elements that each party wants. >> reporter: eight senators four republicans and four democrats have come up with an immigration compromise. the five-page document will be unveiled today. >> americans support it in poll after poll. secondly, latino voters expect it. third, the democrats want it and fourth the republicans need it. >> reporter: tougher border enforcement for republicans and for democrats a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants already in the united states. it would require those who have no serious criminal background
12:07 pm
to register with the government, pay a fine and back taxes. congress has not attempted to overhaul the nation's immigration laws since 2007. republicans rejected a bill that george w. bush supported because it was amnesty. senator john mccain is behind the latest plan. he says the gop should help it become law in order to win over hispanic voters. >> look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. and we have to understand that. >> reporter: tomorrow, president obama is traveling to las vegas to lay out his vision for immigration reform. danielle nottingham, cbs news, washington. so, do you have super bowl fever just yet? still ahead, california senators start making bets. what's at stake besides the lombardi trophy. we're in the big easy ahead of
